Websites, including www.dobrovolec.org, are urging Russians to join the fight in Ukraine, and signing up is just a click away. It’s yet another way the Internet and social media are changing the way conflicts are fought.

Though the Russian military has pulled back from eastern Ukraine, ultranationalist Russians are fighting a proxy war to secure Russian control in that area.
